Five Benefits of Drinking Through a Straw
Most sit-down restaurants provide drinking straws for their customers as a courtesy, and to prevent them from having to sip from the actual glasses. Though drinking straws are mainly offered for hygiene and convenience, there are some added benefits to using them on other occasions. Some are health related; others are linked to "safety." The next time you take a drink, reconsider using a straw. You just might be glad you did.
# 1- Finding Foreign Objects If you're up on your news headlines, you'll recall the story of a man who found a frog inside his Diet Pepsi can. No one yet knows exactly how the frog ended up on the inside of the can. But the man's discovery was made after he took a sip from the can and discovered the dead frog. However, had the man used a straw and stirred the drink a bit, he might have discovered the weighty material floating around on the bottom.
#2- Life Savers This may seem like an elementary benefit. But those who have been in horrible car accidents for example, requiring their jaws to be wired shut, are often completely dependent upon drinking straws. In this case, this is the only way that some accident survivors can receive the nutrition they need without doctors resorting to more invasive feeding methods.
#3- A Drinking Straw Helps the "Medicine" Go Down On occasion you may find yourself in need of a yucky-tasting dietary supplement or liquid medication. Because drinking straws allow for swift movement of liquids into the mouth, they are great for taking medicines. By placing the straw towards the back of the mouth, the drink can more easily avoid the taste buds. Drinking straws, especially the funky, twirly ones can also encourage children to drink juices or other liquids that aren't as fun-tasting.
#4- Reduce Choking Risks It has also been said that drinking through a straw reduces the risk of choking on liquids. This is because swallowing with one is usually much easier; people tend to gulp when sipping from glasses and cups, thus increasing the risk of liquids being directed down the wrong path.
#5- Saving the Teeth Dentists recommend drinking through a straw as opposed to sipping from glasses and cups, in order to preserve the teeth. Typically, when people drink from cups, the sugary liquids tend to cover all the teeth more because of the amount of time the liquid stays in the mouth with each sip. However, when a straw is used, the liquid can be better directed away from the teeth, thus saving them from decay and erosion over a period of time.

According to Reasearchers " 7 Health facts about eating SOUP
There’s nothing that pleases our taste buds better than a bowl of soup on a chilly evening. It’s warms you up and satisfies those evening hunger pangs too. But how much do you really know about your favourite evening snack?
Here are some interesting health facts and trivia you didn’t know about soups!
1. The word soup is of Asian origin! It is derived from the su and po, which means good nutrition.
2. Soups are great as fillers when you are on a diet. Don’t want to stuff yourself at dinner? Have a soup just before. A cup of soup also makes for a smart low-cal snack. Simply opt for a clear soup like a Hot and Sour or Veg Manchow Soup to make sure you keep the calories away.
3. Want to remove excess fat from your soup? Simply take a lettuce leaf and draw it across the surface of the soup. The excess fat sticks to the leaf. You can also skim the excess fat off with a large spoon.
4. Do your kids cringe at the sight of vegetables? The perfect solution to that would be soups! Soups are the perfect way to incorporate vegetables in your diet. Not only are they nutritious but they are very tasty too. So now you can sneak in vegetables like tomatoes, spinach and cabbage in your child’s diet and have him enjoy it! Try Tomato Soup which is tasty and nutritious!
5. We ‘eat’ and don’t drink soup. In most cultures, soup is had as a part of the meal. According to etiquette experts, since we consume soup with a spoon as opposed to sipping it from a bowl, we ‘eat’ it.
6. Creamy soups are simply yummy. But, you would want to stay away from them if you want to lose weight. Get this: One cup of light whipping cream contains approximately 700 calories and 74 grams of fat! As many soups are low on trans-fats, sodium, saturated fats and sugar.
7. Soups are energisers! Do you invariably get late for dinner? Simply have a bowl of soup. The high water content in soups will keep you full and give you nutrition too. A bowl of hot, delicious soup would make a great dinner. And no, you wouldn't even see the need to wake up later for a midnight snack! Knorr soups are nutritious as they are made of dehydrated veggies that are freeze-dried to make sure the nutrients are preserved.
So now that you know a little more about soups, you have even more reason to enjoy it every day or evening!
